durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle, light brownish amber with a two finger, big-bubbled beige head. Nose is grassy, caramely, herbal, and slightly mushroom-y. Tastes a bit sweeter upon the first sip, but the nuanced flavors come out in subsequent sips. Prickly palate. Reminds me of some of the Fantome saisons in its weirdness. I dig it.

mattyhennessy (253) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 22, 2014
Corked 750ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber orange with a large white head. Fruity and yeasty aromas with a large degree of sweetness taste has some caramel and malt sweetness that is well balanced with the strong fruit flavours, without overly dominating the yeast. Finishes bittersweet, making this excellent

c0fein (176) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2014
750ml bottle @ Maunula beer tasting. From Saveur Biere.

Copper orange colour with beautiful white head. Aroma of fruit and some sourness. Good thick mouthfeel and taste of dry fruits. Very Belgian. First Biere de Garde style for me.

minutemat (1305) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
75cl bottle @ the Fourth Shrewsbury Bottle Share April 2014, courtesy of myself. Great to try a traditional corked Biere de Garde, first made for the village of Beloeil. Pours a cloudy blond with a creamy texture, comforting saison yeast and a brilliantly mellow sweetness. Could’ve done with being a bit cooler and between the six of us seemed to be gone all-too-quick! Would love to pick this up again. A great blond from a great brewery.

BlackHaddock (3482) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle shared at the fourth Shrewsbury bottle swap on 28th April 2014. Poured a cloudy pale amber/orange with a minimal head of white tight bubbles. The nose was a mixed bag of aromas, yeast, orchard fruits and bread esters. Taste wise it again offered a selection of flavours to try and pick out: each different flavour had a spiciness to go with it, semi-sweet malty molasses played with semi-sour cooking apples and the yeast was never far away from my thoughts. I really enjoyed it, thanks minutemat for bringing it.

Great beer. Easy drinking, smooth, and virtually no alcohol burn. Very fine carbonation. This beer really hits the mark for a Belgian Ale.

jaghana (3700) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - APR 4, 2014
Bottle 75cl, a cloudy amber beer with good head. Nose is on peppery and grassy hops with typical Belgian yeast. Aroma is rich on malt and slightly wheat notes, caramel, bready, Typical belgian hops bouquet, sweet, good body, some astringency at the finish, good.

RexTalionis (2337) - FINLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle 75 cl. Pours unclear pale copper in color with a massive foamy off-white head. Sweet brown sugar and toffee, summer meadowy notes with some flowers in aroma. Sweetish taste with some toffee and darkish biscuits, but fortunately doesn’t feel overly sweet though. Light burnt grains as well. Really tasty one so far. There’s also something that could be described as dried orange peel present tastewise. Bit of of boozyness too, but not in a disturbing way, feels more like a precise punch at the right moment. Bittersweet with some herbal spicyness in aftertaste.
